Review: Rhymes with Art: Cartooning the Fun Way

The master of comedy strikes again with this super cute book for kids who love to draw. Packaged in a novel-format book, Adam 'Wally' Wallace shows kids how to draw a series of kooky critters, using basic shapes.

Critters are plentiful and include a UFO Dog (it begins life as a UFO, then you add a headlight, then two doors, then ... well, you get the picture ... 'scuse the pun), a Rooster Rabbit,  a Bum Cat, a Dragon Tail Rhino and my favourite - a Reading Bug.

Along the way, Wally peppers his instruction with quirky rhyming text that's sure to raise a smile. Perfect for the upcoming summer school holidays.

See Wally in his v v v funny drawing video below and check out the drawings other kids have done from Rhymes with Art right here (they're v v v cute). To buy a signed copy of the book (yes, signed by the author!) click right here.
